I would point out that for a large number of small businesses who are
owner operated and have only one person or maybe 2, software like
Quicken or MYOB is overkill and therefor a waste of money. I'm a sole
trader and account via a small series of spreadsheets (OO.o of course).
Why? 'cos I never need more than a cash book and GST accounting is now
very simple as is PAYG. My cash book spreadsheet, does a monthly P&L and
I dont worry about a balance sheet. Invoices are prepared using a OO.o
Writer Form My accountant is happy with this approach and prepares
annual Tax Return from this information.
